Mediaeval Welsh Monasteries by John Wyn Roberts


Mediaeval Welsh Monasteries by John Wyn Roberts

Medieval Welsh Monasteries examines the nature of monastic life in medieval times and seeks to explore what kind of place a monastery was and how the religious houses developed in Wales. It does this by a close examination of the main Welsh abbeys, abundantly illustrated, and of the documentary evidence provided by the Rule of St. Benedict, the Welsh chronicles and the foundation charters of individual houses. It also looks at the monasteries as property holders and their eventual fate in Tudor times.
